“We are so grateful to our dealership partners for recognizing iA American with seven Dealers’ Choice Awards this year,” said Kristen Gruber, President of iA American. “This is more than double the number of awards we won last year, and a clear indication that our clients appreciate our team’s commitment to delivering a superior Client Experience.”

“Winning the top-tier Diamond Awards for F&I Product Training and Service Training and the Gold Award for Online Training is such an honor,” said Eric “Frenchy” Mélon, SVP of Sales and Head of Training & Development.“On behalf of our entire 70+ team, thank you for recognizing the enormous value of our training program with your vote.”

Now in its 18th year, the Dealers’ Choice Awards are determined solely by dealers and dealership personnel. Voters were asked to complete at least five of the survey’s 40 categories, entering their partner company’s name and scoring them on quality, value, customer service, and whether they would recommend that company to another dealer.
